Problem summary

  • APAR NUMBER:  PJ41194
    PRODUCT:  z/TPF
    FUNCTIONAL AREA:  MESSAGE ROUTER
    SHIPPED IN PUT:  10
    ABSTRACT:
    A SNAP-3C6 system error may occur when the system routes a
    message to the PRC.
    PACKAGE CONTENTS:
    Source Segments:
    (C) base/rt/capn.asm
    (C) base/rt/capp.asm
    
    Object Only Binaries:
    None.
    
    Configuration Independent Binaries:
    (C) base/load/CAPN.so
    (C) base/load/CAPP.so
    (C) base/obj/capn.o
    (C) base/obj/capp.o
    
    Support Files:
    base/lst/capn.lst
    base/lst/capp.lst
    base/lst/CAPN.map
    base/lst/CAPP.map
    
    OTHER BINARIES TO BUILD: NO
    None.
    COMMENTS:
    Within z/TPF, certain functions need to send notifications to
    the system console (PRC). If these functions use the method of
    building a message and an RCPL in order to ROUTC the message,
    then one of the requirements is to build the proper device type
    into the RCPL. One of the functions which uses this method is
    the system time-initiated command processing (ZSTIM) package,
    which allows the system to automatically enter customer-defined
    commands on certain time intervals. In the case of the
    time-initiated command processing, if an error occurs while
    attempting to enter one of these commands into the system, the
    processing will then build a message and attempt to ROUTC it to
    the PRC. However, the processing placed a hard-coded 1052-type
    device type in the RCPL which it was building. In the case of a
    customer environment which has 3270 console support configured
    on their system, the attempt to ROUTC the s-timer error message
    to the PRC will, instead, result in a SNAP-3C6 dump, as the
    message was not formatted properly to be sent to a 3270 type
    device. The system alerts package needs to be modified to
    properly set the device type to be placed in the RCPL, based on
    the system console type, in order to have the message properly
    formatted for the corresponding console type.
    

Problem conclusion

  • SOLUTION:
    Within the time-initiated command processing package, realtime
    segments CAPN and CAPP have been modified to set the
    appropriate device type of the console into the RCPL based on
    interrogating the device type saved in the PRC's WGTA entry.
    This correction will allow the message to be properly formatted
    for the corresponding console type.
    COREQS: NO
    None.
